Kim is down to earth and very professional. She is stealthy - didn't notice her climbing everywhere to get that perfect photo! She made us feel comfortable and at ease. She's hands on and will assist with anything. Don't know how to put a boutonniere on your brother or bussle your dress? Don't worry, she's got you covered! She knew all the best places to take photos at Emerald Lake and the Natural Bridge. She had recommendations for other vendors that would work with what we wanted (cake, flowers). Very flexible in her packages. We received a few teaser pictures the next day to share with friends, family (or social media) and they are amazing. Can't get over how amazing she is at what she does!Sent on 01/06/2019

Beautiful Engagement Photos!
My fiance worked with Kim to capture our engagement and Emerald Lake Lodge and she was amazing! She was knowledgeable about the location and the best spots to take photos, and was great to work with. She got our sneak peek photos to us so quickly so we were able to share the news with friends and family. Her photos were gorgeous, and we would absolutely recommend contacting Kim for your engagement/wedding photos!Sent on 16/01/2021

Professional, Calm and Collected, Organized
Kim was an absolute delight! My (now) husband and I decided to have a relatively last minute small wedding ceremony outside in Lake Louise and we are so thankful Kim was available to be there to capture our time together. She was punctual, professional, attentive, and helped us stay on track (since our wedding ceremony was a touch disorganized!) - also, extremely talented! We love our photos! It is worth mentioning that we reached out to many other photographers, and Kim was the only one who seemed to "get" what we were looking for and not push other services or overcomplicate things. She was an ideal wedding photographer. Thank you, Kim!Sent on 06/02/2021

Kim was incredible since day 1. She was always very quick to get back to me and basically helped us plan our whole elopement. She’s a local so she know’s all the best places and people to go with for your big day! Our pictures are absolutely stunning and we couldn’t have asked for a better photographer. Kim is so kind, funny and incredibly talented. We enjoyed every second of our day with her. If you’re looking for a photographer, definitely go with her!! I’ve attached just a few of our favourites however we’re absolutely in love with all of them!
Thanks for everything Kim!Sent on 04/11/2020

Fantastic experience with Kim
Kim was extremely professional and detail oriented. She had a clear plan in place for the day, kept us on schedule and delivered amazing results. She even had the wedding party and family members' names memorized when she arrived! We had about a dozen "sneak peak" photos immediately the morning following the wedding and over 800 edited photos sent via e-mail and a personalized USB with small accent gifts mailed to us within 8 weeks. I had multiple wedding guests comment on how amazing Kim was throughout the day and afterwards. I would absolutely recommend her to shoot any event large or small.Sent on 30/10/2020
